I am not sure if all go this way but I wish they did for everyones sake.

We arrived at 11:00am for our 11:15 appt.

Called us back at 11:45.

The nice lady swore my wife and I in. We had our newborn son of 5 weeks with us as well. I was going to act as interpreter for my wife, which the officer did not really like but said since we had our newborn with us she would allow it.

She asked to see my wifes passport and a copy of my sons birth certificate. Ask how we met, I answered. They ask my wife if that was her signature on the I-485 and ask her address. Approved. Congratulations!! All of about 10-15 minutes.

My wife did her medical in Costa Rica before getting her K-3. We also did medical here. We had our medical packet with us which they did not ask for and I didn't remember to bring it up. Oh well I guess.

Easy Easy Easy!!

Good luck to those of you waiting and thanks to all of those for the help!!
